Description
One of the New York Times Book Review' s 100 Notable Books of 2014! Ullmann's characters are complex and paradoxical: neither fully guilty nor fully innocent Siri Brodal, a chef and restaurant owner, is married to Jon Dreyer, a famous novelist plagued by writer's block. Siri and Jon have two daughters, and together they spend their summers on the coast of Norway, in a mansion belonging to Jenny Brodal, Siri's stylish and unforgiving mother. Siri and Jon's marriage is loving but difficult, and troubled by painful secrets. They have a strained relationship with their elder daughter, Alma, who struggles to find her place in the family constellation. When Milla is hired as a nanny to allow Siri to work her long hours at the restaurant and Jon to supposedly meet the deadline on his book, life in the idyllic summer community takes a dire turn. One rainy July night, Milla disappears without a trace. After her remains are discovered and a suspect is identified, everyone who had any connection with her feels implicated in her tragedy and haunted by what they could have done to prevent it. The Cold Song is a story about telling stories and about how life is continually invented and reinvented.

display_descriptionSome years after the disappearance of a young woman, three boys uncover her body during a treasure hunt out in the woods of Norway. This novel centers itself on the individual lives of a small family, (Siri Brodal, and Jon Dreyer, and their two daughters), and the murder of this woman, their babysitter, Milla. In life, Milla's relationship with the family is constructed by the many details that come to implicate each character in her murder, implications that haunt them all once her body is found. Milla, whom no one thought much of, seemed to set everything and everyone in motion, and after the crime against her is brought to light, a lingering unease continues to eat away at those who desired her, those who searched for her, those who killed her, those who tried to forget her, those who mourned her, those who found her, and those who turned their backs on her, alike. Everyone who had any connection with her feels implicated in her tragedy and haunted by what they could have done to prevent it. -- Provided by publisher.
